Summer Hair Tip: Sun-kissed Locks

So it’s almost August. By now, you have the perfect, supremely covetable summer highlights flowing through your mane. Right??

Or maybe not. Maybe having a real life and a job and responsibilities to family and friends (or maybe just not wanting to sit out in the sun and roast constantly) has eaten into your perfect ‘do. 

To rescue, there’s balayage hair lightening. It’s the ultimate and most direct route to a face-framing, sun kissed natural look. (Remember when you were little and outside from sun-up to sun-down? It looks like that.)

“It’s a quick service that our artists perform freehand, and it gets painted on and takes about five to ten minutes,” says Amy Desrochers of Gretta Cole, our lovely salon in Wellesley. Applications start at $65. Desrochers loves to pair the service with Oribe Bright Blonde Shampoo and Conditioner for Beautiful Color. “It all instantly brightens natural or highlighted blondes, and has a violet base to correct brassiness, which is perfect for highlighted brunettes–especially in the summertime.”
